Digital printing technology has significantly improved over the years. Because of this advancement, key industries have been able to merge and become more diversified. For example, screen printers can offer digital printing services, and signage companies can offer apparel. This is due to the development of eco-solvent printers. This trend has also taken place with dye-sublimation printers. These printers make it possible to digitally add custom graphics to a wide variety of material, such as fabrics, chairs, promotional products, clothing, coffee mugs, and other products. This advancement in technology has also made it possible to create graphic designs on inflatable arches as well.

“As the race coordinator for the Come Clean Duathlon, I came to Strike a month out from my race looking for a custom inflatable archway for our finish line. Not only were they able to work with my short turn around time but they were also the best-priced option I could find. The archway was well made and was very easy to set-up. Also, I love how everything fits in the carrying case, which will protect my arch from year to year. Thank you Athletic Event Supply for helping me take my race to the next level!” – Chloe White, Race Coordinator
